No explosive found after bomb threat at elementary school

Posted: Updated:

No explosives were found by law enforcement at a local elementary school after the school administration discovered a bomb threat in the school.

Superintendent Darren Kroczaleski said at about 1 p.m. on Friday, May 18, the Standish-Sterling Central Elementary School’s administration learned about a note on a bathroom wall that read “BOOM 1:30”.

Superintendent Kroczaleski said because of the short time frame, students were evacuated and police were notified of the situation.

Students were shuttled to Standish-Sterling Central Central High School and were later bused home.

After a K-9 bomb squad swept through the school for any potential explosive, no device was found.

Kroczaleski said parents were not notified because of the hurried nature of the events, but he said the school is cleared and parents can return to pick up their child’s belongings if necessary.

The school will be open until 9 p.m. and classes will resume as usual on Monday.

Kroczaleski said he doesn’t believe the incident had anything to do with the school shooting in Houston, but from children making poor choices.
